I hope not. I get to tired to use anything buy a mouse or gamepad sometimes. All this motion control stuff is cool. But not when you are winding down for the evening.

Touch screens and pointing devices like the Wiimote may seem cool and may look like they are the future, but they're not quite as versatile as the mouse. Also, they both will be tiring to use for extended periods of time.

They are also extremely light. You don't hold a controller for hours on end now when gaming?

The difference between a controller and a pointing device is that with a controller, you're using it in a rested position. With a pointing device, you're pointing it at the screen, and to do that you have to lift your arm in the air.

As an expert I say they're wrong.
Unless we get "Matrix like" input to control things with our brain(perfectly) the mouse is here to stay.
